Guardian chief: UK had newspaper disks destroyed

(Continued)

LONDON —

Rusbridger said the destruction wouldn't curb the Guardian's reporting, suggesting that copies of the Snowden files were held elsewhere and that reporting would continue outside the U.K. He added that British police's recent detention of David Miranda — the partner of Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald — and the seizure of the former's laptop, phones, and other devices would similarly have no effect on Greenwald's work.

Snowden's leaks — published in the Guardian, The Washington Post, and other publications — have exposed the details of the United States' global surveillance apparatus, sparking an international debate over the limits of American spying. And as lawmakers debate reforms and civil liberties group go to court, journalists have been wrestling with the implications of mass surveillance.

Rusbridger said Monday that the spies were growing so powerful "it may not be long before it will be impossible for journalists to have confidential sources."
